Ha! I love it when I am right. Last week I had insider information that the Red Sox catcher was banging smoke show side line reporter Heidi Watney, and that his wife found out it. Now on boston.com is reporting that his wife is filing for divorce.
Sox catcher Jason Varitek (above) is splitting with his wife, Karen. The team captain filed for divorce July 28 in Gwinnett County, Ga., where the couple live in the offseason. They were married in 1997 and have three daughters, ages 8, 6, and 3. Varitek is in the final year of a four-year, $40-million contract he signed after the BoSox won the World Series in 2004. He'll be a free agent at the end of this season, though he turns 37 in April and is hitting just .216. Neither Varitek's attorney, Pamela Tremayne, nor his wife's attorney, Jonathan Levine, returned our phone calls yesterday.
As I mentioned before his wife never had a chance.
